Coral Bowl

I had a great time at the Las Vegas Glass and Bead Convention recently. I took a class on making coral bowls. It was only a 3 hour class so we only got to construct an 8” bowl. It was a little hard to get the amount of holes I wanted in this size bowl. I wasn’t to happy with the instruction I received. The number of glass pieces should have been a lot less and more spread out for my liking. At least I know what not to do on my next one. The piece was full fused there and it was all white glass. We took the piece home to sift powders on and full fuse again and slump ourselves. I thought that class was a little pricey for what you learned.

I took another class which was more fun and right up my alley. I will post about it tomorrow.

Acrylic Painting in Progress

Here is a series of photos showing my 16x16 acrylic painting, step by step, on Canson Acrylic Paper. This was the last painting I did this winter in the Phoenix area. This is on the grounds of the San Exavier Mission. It is an extraordinary mission with a lot of history.

I’m still loving painting on this Canson paper. My next challenge will be mounting the paintings I’ve done on this paper to hardboard for framing. I will let you know how that works out.
